This is a really interesting, colourful book, and it's so CHEAP! It includes colour photos of figures you might be able to find in a good antique shop, rather than just in a museum, although it has some rare pieces too. It's written in a straightforward, informative way, by someone who obviously has a feel for these jolly British ceramics. There's a useful chapter on how to spot fakes, which I found particularly interesting, as there are a lot of fakes around. I shall take it with me when I go out hunting for figures for my (very small) collection! Thoroughly recommended as an inexpensive, thorough, historically informative book for the inexperienced - and those who know a little bit about Staffordshire figures (like me!)

A clearly written and well illustrated book that I would recommend to anyone who starts collecting Staffordshire figures. The book outlines the stylistic and chornological features of the phenomenon. It provides the reader with the insight into the social setting, in which Staffordshire figures developed. The book is useful for those who wishes to avoid buying fakes or later replicas.

Very good, a useful introduction to the world of Victorian Staffordshire and a very usable size while of course lacking the detail of the encyclopaedic Harding works in which (I forgot to say in the reviews) the illustrations are copious and of excellent quality
